Diversity Institute Alumni Fund

About the Fund 

This fund exists to subsidize conference travel for alumni of undergraduate diversity institutes. Presenting at and participating in conferences is key to professional success in philosophy, but organizers of diversity institutes have found that many institute alumni are unable to pursue these professional development opportunities due to lack of financial resources. This fund, supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to address that need.

Funding and Eligibility Information 

  • The fund provides a maximum of $500 in travel subsidies per person per fiscal year (July 1 to June 30). 
  • Funding is provided through reimbursement, and only costs actually expended may be reimbursed. Receipts must be provided.
  • Only those who have participated in an undergraduate diversity institute, either as an undergraduate student or as a graduate assistant, are eligible to receive support from this fund. Applicants at any career stage are welcome.
  • Travel support is offered for participation in philosophy conferences and events.
  • To be eligible for support from this fund, a person must be on the conference program (as a speaker, chair, commentator, etc.) for the event in question. 

To the extent possible, all those who request funding and are deemed eligible will receive funding. If funding requests exceed the amount of funding available, the executive director will determine how much funding to award and to whom. Preference will be given to those most in need, those without any institutional support available (as opposed to those who have exhausted existing institutional support), and those who have not previously received support from this fund. Questions regarding fund eligibility may be directed to the APA Program Assistant at
